Gene Watson, the singer’s singer, returns to the Branson stage, and he’s bringing along some of the best back-up musicians in the business - The Farewell Party Band! He’s been singing for decades, but his powerful voice and multi-octave range remains wonderfully intact, allowing him to easily perform some of the most challenging songs, the type of music that artists of his generation tend to shy away from...yep, he’s that good!
Maybe his incredible voice and humble nature come from remembering his roots -- even in a musical genre noted for its hard-luck stories, Gene Watson’s early life stands out. His father moved around a lot in order to scratch out a living for his eight children, and Gene’s home as a child was, for many years, a converted school bus. But a loving family and a God-given talent for singing, created one of music’s greatest classic artists, one that remains defiantly country in the face of today’s more pop-oriented offerings -- he’s proud to know that his large and loyal fanbase relies on him to help keep traditional country music on America’s stages.
Gene Watson's list of hits is impressive; it includes songs like “Love in the Hot Afternoon,” “Where Love Begins,” “Paper Rosie,” “Farewell Party,” “One Sided Conversation,” “Pick the Wildwood Flower,” “You’re Out Doing What I’m Doing Without,” “Fourteen Carat Mind,” “Don’t Waste It On the Blues,” and “What She Don’t Know Won’t Hurt Her.”
